Respect Life Activities

Educating:  The Respect Life Ministry conducts four quarterly educational events for the parish and community.  Recent topics have included Natural Procreative Technology and exposing Planned Parenthood’s war on women.

Informing:  The Respect Life Ministry keeps parishioners up to date on pro-life topics, such as abortion, contraception, euthanasia, and embryonic stem cell research; how the Church leadership assists in building a society based on the “culture of life”.

Activating:  The Respect Life Ministry co-sponsors and coordinates the local observance of the Annual National Life Chain Sunday in October.  At this event, we gather around the square in Cleveland with people of many faiths to prayerfully serve and defend the lives of unborn children, witness the sanctity of life and protest abortion.

Spirituality:  The Respect Life Ministry sponsors the annual Pro-Life Rosary and Mass on the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, January 22.  A pro-life Rosary is prayed weekly on Thursdays at 6:00 pm during the Adoration of our Lord.
